The National Employment Lawyers Association (NELA) is at the forefront of efforts to advance equality and justice in the American workplace through federal legislation and public policy. Since NELA's inception, we have lobbied and provided technical assistance to Congress on scores of federal legislation that bring us closer to achieving our mission. Visit our About NELA page for more information about our work.
Safeguard workers' recoveries for illegal workplace violations from unfair taxation.
Ensure that independent and fair-minded individuals who are faithful to America's promise of equal justice under law are appointed to the federal bench.
Enhance workplace protections on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, and age.
Advocate for stronger protections for workers with caregiving responsibilities, including strengthening the Family and Medical Leave Act, passage of the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act, and reforms to unfair scheduling practices.
Advocate for an increase in the minimum wage, as well as fair wage, hour, and leave standards; protect those who expose employer abuse, fraud, and waste; and challenge at-will employment.
Cultivating The Next Generation Of Employee Rights Advocates
NELA offers opportunities for dynamic interns (undergraduate and/or law students) to assist with important projects related to NELA’s core mission of advancing employee rights and serving lawyers who advocate for equality and justice in the American workplace. Internships are available for every academic term, including summers. NELA requires that prospective interns simultaneously participate in for-credit academic programs. How To Apply
NELA's Grassroots Advocacy Program
NELA's most important asset is its membership. To leverage our voices, we have created NELA's Grassroots Advocacy Team (GAT) to involve NELA members, Affiliate leaders, and Affiliate members in our legislative and public policy initiatives.
